This is one bloggers’ event that I enjoyed myself thoroughly. What would interest a health freak more than a health event, eh? From start to end, every moment of the Health And Wellness Discovery Journey Event organized by Vitacare Pharmacy was filled with discovery of informative health information.
The most exciting part of the event was a life demonstration of “Live Blood Analysis” (LBA) – a test using high-resolution dark field microscopy to observe the life blood cells to provide information about the state of the immune system, possible vitamin deficiencies, amount of toxicity, pH and mineral imbalance and other areas of imbalance. This test was complimentary to all the bloggers, with instantaneous results of our LBA. I opted to be the first volunteer to have my blood tested and I was really amazed and pleased with the results.
Below: my LBA results, projected onto the screen for all to view, with the pharmacist explaining the results…
As accurate as a lab blood test done, the pharmacist could tell that I am anemic. As I had eaten a bowl of red beans sweet soup and peanut butter toast for breakfast, the microscopic test shows several slightly acidic blood cells (peanuts and red beans are slightly acidic). Overall, my blood analysis shows good blood profile with healthy blood shown.
After the first LBA of my blood, I was given a cup of Rin Enzyme to drink. Half an hour later, another LBA test was done to see the changes in my blood cells.
RIN Enzyme is a premium phyto-enzyme drink from Japan, fortified with more than 36 kinds of vegetables, fruits, grains, algae and greens. It is the perfect enzyme supplement for today’s hazardous environment and hectic lifestyle.
20ml of Rin Enzyme a day can help to enhance digestion and nutrient absorption, promote metabolism, increase body immunity, reduce blood acidity, normalize hormones, improve skin complexion, assist weight loss and promote general well-being.
Below: blood cells of my 2nd LBA, which according to the pharmacist appear ‘healthier’. Normal and healthy blood cells are roundish in shape and nicely spread across the field. They are sometimes touching or even slightly overlapping, but they’re not all piled up on top of each other. There are occasional small empty spaces.
After viewing the specimens of blood from about 5 volunteers among us bloggers, we were all “experts” already in differentiating healthy and unhealthy blood cells! Ha ha! When the microscopic images of subsequent blood smears were projected onto the screen, we could already tell which looked healthy and which didn’t.
Below: blood smear sample from one volunteer who told us that she’s a Thalassemia carrier. As you can see here, her blood cells are not roundish. They look beat up, clustered and piled together. They deviate from a perfect round appearance.
The LBA from another volunteer showed a bad overlapping of cells. The result interpreted that she has gout, is very stressed, has acidic blood and some other health issues.
I find the LBA very interesting. It’s a ‘fortune telling’ of sorts of our blood and health under the lens. I am now contemplating bringing our girls to have their blood analysed too. At least I know how healthy or unhealthy their blood cells are and how they can be remedied.
Vitacare normally charges a fee for the LBA but on some special occasions, like the event that I attended, they offer complimentary tests. Below is the special LBA microscope costing a whopping RM30,000 each!

30 years ago, in a quiet neighborhood mall in the Klang Valley, Vitacare was born. A long-held dream of two pharmacists, the vision then, of putting the customer first by providing the best top-quality health and well-being consultation around continues today as it did way back then.
Below: the owners of The Good Co., giving a short talk on their set up and products after distributing very yummy energy jars to us.
After the talk was over, the bloggers had a group photo session and refreshments of healthy snacks. We were each given a HUGE goodie bag (I’m SO HAPPY!) bursting with healthy goodies inside!! And gawd, the bag was really heavy with bottles of good stuff! I had to lug it around to get takeout lunch and then lug it to the car park.
I so love the bag…
… and all the contents inside…worth RM500!
Health freak’s delight in a bag: a bottle of Rin Enzyme, a bottle of tonic consisting of a concoction of ginger, lemon, celery, honey and apple cider vinegar, Breton healthy crackers, 123 Easy health drink powder, homemade mushroom powder, granola and nuts from Amazin’ Graze (my favorite – they sell really amazing and tasty granola), Lifestream Asta Zan supplement, wild honey and a very pretty gift tied with a gorgeous ribbon over an elegant box.
What could be inside the box?!
Cass was more excited that I was. I gave her the honour to unwrap the gift. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the bottle of Trilogy organic rosehip oil antioxidant and Trilogy firming body lotion! Trilogy is New Zealand’s no. 1 skincare brand and they are pretty costly here.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the health event and wish to thank Vitacare for inviting me. Please count me in should you have future health events 😉 I don’t mind being an ambassador of Vitacare as I’ve always been a loyal fan of this pharmacy. Vitacare carries an impressive array of health products, supplements and natural products.
